The batter of this moist and delicious cake could also be baked in two loaf pans. Reduce baking time to 45 minutes. To make this even more special, dust with confectioners' sugar, sprinkle with cinnamon, or drizzle with warm honey before serving.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch Bundt pan or 2 loaf pans.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and oil. Beat in the eggs until light, then stir in the honey and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and allspice; stir into the batter just until moistened. Fold in the apples and nuts. Transfer batter to prepared pan or pans (see Cook's Note).

  • Bake Bundt cake until a toothpick inserted into the crown comes out clean, about one hour. (Start checking for doneness after 50 minutes.) Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before inverting onto a plate and tapping out of the pan. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar, sprinkle with cinnamon, or drizzle with warm honey before serving.

Cook's Notes:

If you're baking the cake in loaf pans, reduce baking time to 45 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center of each pan comes out clean.

You can substitute pecans for the walnuts, if you like.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! i made some alterations in an attempt to make it healthier. I used 1/2 cup splenda and 1/2 cup of splenda brown sugar. i also only used 1/2 cup of honey. i used half applesauce and half olive oil. i also used whole wheat flour and i didnt have allspice so i added nutmeg instead. I also chopped the apples up instead of shreaded them. I will DEFINATLY make this again! Read More

Quite good! We cut the sugar to 1/4 cup and the honey to 1/2 cup. Substituted 1/2 vanilla rice milk for 1/2 the oil. Also had no nuts. Easy to make. Shared with the neighbors who also liked it. Plenty sweet with less suagar and honey. We will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

Delicious! It was very sweet but I like it sweet. I made it fat free by substituting pumpkin for all of the fat which produced an extremely moist cake. I'll definitely make again! Read More

This was a great cake. I actually made 2...1st was exactly as written and 2nd I made the following changes: used 2/3 c white sugar 3 tbs Splenda 1/2 c canola oil 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce 1 egg 1/4 c egg substitute 1/2 c honey 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour 1 c whole wheat flour added 1/4 tsp ground cloves I chopped instead of shred the apples and used white sugar instead of flour on the baking pan. It smelled so good coming out of the oven we dug in as soon as I flipped the cake out of the pan. I loved that the only chopping was for the apples. We only ate the doctored cake so far (the other is for my office) but it was so good with all the changes I can only imagine that the full effect one is even better. So quick and easy my 2 1/2 yo dd helped and had a great time. I can tell I'll be making this a lot. Read More

An excellent cake for Rosh Hashanah. I followed the recipe pretty closely with a couple of small changes: I sub'd 1/3 cup of the oil with apple sauce and increased the amount of apples to 4, and I upped the spices, adding 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cardamon, 1/2 tsp of ginger & 1/8 tsp cloves. The cake turned out wonderfully! Very moist and quite delicious, and hubby even said it was the best honey cake he had ever had (I blush!) Read More

This cake was a hit! I took it to a church fellowship and it was gone in less than 5 minutes! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. I may add a full cup of nuts next time but only because I REALLY like nuts. Good flavor but not too sweet and really moist. I will definately be making this again!! Read More

This is a great recipe. I didn't have allspice so I substituted 1/2 tbsp nutmeg..it was delicious. I used 2 red delicious apples and one granny smith. I used my hand grater and used the largest part of the shredder. I noticed that the granny smith stays white and produces more juice while the red turned browm even after sprinkling w a little lemon juice..really makes no difference looks the same when done. I also made this a second time with 1/2 c chopped walnuts. the cake came out bigger..I am not that fond of nuts but the people that were loved it. I think it is moister without the nuts! Read More

Delicious! Easy to make as well. Moist and flavorful. I followed the recipe only adding some nutmeg because I love the spice with apples. I made a simple dessert sauce to go along with it: 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup heavy cream 1 teaspoon vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to boil for 3 minutes and serve warm. Read More
